AIC is one of the most experienced providers of the IB Diploma in New Zealand, offering the IB programme exclusively
The best school to get you into the world's best universities!
AIC provides a learning environment conducive to academic achievement.
Established in 2003, Auckland International College (AIC) is a NZ independent day and boarding school of approximately 380 students, which offers a 3-year senior secondary school education. The specific focus of the school is to prepare students for entry to top universities worldwide. AIC is the only NZ school where all students study the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and it has the largest number of IB Diploma students in New Zealand.
Auckland International College is pleased to announce a Whau Scholarship for a Year 11 student in the Whau Local Board area.
The idea for the scholarship was borne out of a meeting between Whau Local Board members and AIC Principal Carolyn Solomon.
“AIC is a school with an impressive academic record. Its students work extremely hard, but they are rewarded as they go on to study at some of the world’s best universities. The Whau Scholarship is an opportunity for a bright student from the Whau Local Board area to attend AIC who might otherwise be unable to attend due to financial constraints. Myself and fellow board member Simon Matafai are looking forward to meeting some promising candidates to help select a deserving young person to receive the scholarship. I hope to see many local students apply,” says Whau Local Board deputy chair Susan Zhu.
AIC is funding the scholarship, which will cover tuition fees of $18,000 per year for Year 11, 12 and 13. The College is pleased to collaborate with the Whau Local Board in the selection process to award the scholarship.
The Eton Press Casio Senior Mathematics competition for New Zealand is open to all students doing a year 12 or year 13 mathematics course and provides challenging questions for the more able students, with significant prizes, including airfares to the venue of the final paper. Hundreds of students throughout New Zealand enter this competition every year.
Congratulations to AIC's Catherine Chen and Cong Quoc Bao Nguyen who were in the top 100 students; congratulations also to Miles Lee and Ngoc Quyen Pham who were among the 14 finalists who were flown to Wellington for the final paper. Heartiest congratulations to Miles Lee who won first place in the competition.
Congratulations to Grace Lee who has won Victoria University of Wellington's International Institute of Modern Letters (IIML) National Schools Poetry award. Senior secondary students from throughout New Zealand entered the competition, and Grace's poem Eileithyia was the winner chosen from the ten finalists. Judges said they were drawn to the poem's "gusto and exuberant music of its lines and imagery".
Congratulations to Cherie Jia, accepted for California Institute of Technology, ranked no. 1 in the world. This is an outstanding achievement. Cherie has an impressive profile. She has been selected for the New Zealand International Biology Olympiad team, received an offer also from Oxford University and established a charity which fundraised for computers for the Auckland Cerebral Palsy School.
Once again, AIC students have ranked among the highest IB Diploma students worldwide. Every year since the College’s first graduating class, our Year 13 students have out-performed the world IB results.
At the Top Scholars Awards Ceremony held at Government House in February 2015, 31 AIC students were honoured. AIC had more students receiving over 40 points in the Diploma than any other school in New Zealand. 29% of AIC students entering the Diploma Programme received over 40 points in 2014, which compares exceptionally well against the global percentage of 6% of students gaining 40 or more points in the Diploma.
We congratulate all of the students who received a Top Scholar Award and look forward to following you as you take the next step in your education.
